Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side. It has seven bays of golden sand, which are Dumpton Gap, Louisa Bay, Viking Bay, Stone Bay, Joss Bay, Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay. Broadstairs has a very mild maritime climate.
Broadstairs is a wonderful mixture of Victorian architecture, hidden cobbled squares, cliff top walks and sandy beaches. Our shops still offer a personal service with a range of goods and gifts that independent stores do so well.
Broadstairs is not only a summer resort but a great place to spend time in the winter. With Halloween events and firework displays through out the local area and beyond it's a good time to have break away from home. The Viking Trail is a good enough reason in itself to visit Broadstairs, a cycling and walking route showing the best of Kent's coastline. A Coast for all Seasons!
The summer holidays may have slipped away, but our coast is still lively and open for inspirational fun at great attractions. Get a cultural fix at Turner Contemporary, or immerse yourself in compelling World War II history at the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum – all for free. Relive childhood magic at the Hornby Visitor Centre, or follow the adventures of Major Powell-Cotton in Africa and Asia at The Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House and Gardens. ANNUAL EVENTS

Hi! I'm a married lady with grown up children. I have spent most of my life working in London and after a redundancy invested in a property which I named Shorley Wall and I cherish. I love making guests feel welcome and I'm happiest when they have enjoyed their stay. I also manage the Broadstairs Tourist Information kiosk, help my husband manage his building firm and we also host foreign students from the local English School. I have many hobbies, our beautiful dogs which I walk every morning along the seafront, how lucky am I I run a successful Bake Club with my friend at the local vintage tea room, it is called The Great Broadstairs Bake Off. I also run a craft club which we call The Crafty Broads and each year we yarn bomb Broadstairs - great fun. I love shopping(!) restaurants, eating out with friends is one of my favourite things to do I'm a nanny which I still can't quite believe to three gorgeous grandchildren and another one expected in September. I have the most wonderful husband in the world, we married in 2014 after spending 30 years together! We love travelling and when away mostly always book apartments so I hope I know what guests are looking for.
Gina purchased this House in 2010
Why Gina chose Broadstairs
We wanted a property that was near to our house so that we could maintain it ourselves and be available to meet and greet.
What makes this House unique
We thought this house perfect for holidays, it has a drive allowing parking for two cars; you can walk everywhere in Broadstairs yet it is in a quiet location with no through traffic.
